Switch owners who are also fans of the shoot ’em up genre are in luck, as a new game is coming to the console later this month that will scratch that particular itch. Publisher THQ Nordic has announced today that Sine Mora EX is coming to Switch later this month, with the release date being September 26.
The game is actually already available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with the game launching for those platforms last month. The following is an overview of the game provided by the Nintendo eShop:
“Sine Mora is a side-scrolling shoot’em up that provides a unique challenge, where time is the ultimate factor. Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with contemporary presentation, Sine Mora is a gorgeous shoot’em up offering both a Story Mode that weaves an over-the-top tale and an Arcade Mode that provides deep, satisfying gameplay to challenge fans of the genre. With many ways to manipulate time, Sine Mora features over 50 weapon combinations to complete each beautiful stage that fits to the player’s skills with scaling difficulty.
